“Excellent food, Great ambience and great prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2011

My wife and I travelled to Guanajuato for one week and we were disapointed with the lack of good food establishments. We had pretty much resigned ourselves to going into "eat to survive" mode when we stumbled onto this little gem of a restaraunt.

We saw it during a visit to the Diego de Rivera Museum as it is located about a half block away just after crossing a tunnel entrance. We went in to check things out and found a great little bistro type establishment with Parisian decor. It is comfortable, quiet, and not pretentious like so many "French Restaurants."

Le Parisien serves traditional French food like Onion soup, Ratatouille, various meats and poultry in cream or similar sauces. It also has an international menu that includes Tortilla Espanola, Enchiladas Mineras (about the only thing Guanajuato can claim as "good food"), and various other entrees.

They serve a three dish fixed price meal that includes a soup or salad, a main dish of the day, and a simple, yet flavorful dessert. also included in the meal is one fresh water drink (we had jamaica- hibiscus tea- that was flavorful and not overly sweet).

This fixed priced meal is such a good deal I actually walked out to the front to verify the price for it- fifty pesos (about $4.30)!. We are both on low-sodium diets and our first meal was a bit salty but we ate there three other times and they prepared the food just to our liking.

Try the chicken with chipotle flavored cream sauce. It is delicious.

We only wish we had found it a bit sooner, we probably would have had all our noon meals there. We ate at a couple of other restaurants around the Parque Union. The food was passsable and cost two to three times as much as at Le Parisien.
